Magna was performed live on http://stillstream.com ,June 23, 2013 while fireworks exploded outside my window. Done using midi controller, Linux and personal field recordings. Music fashioned using the buddhalizer --a virtual extension of the imagination.

"Truth shall prevail -- don't you know Magna est veritas . . . Yes, when it gets a chance. There is a law, no doubt -- and likewise a law regulates your luck in the throwing of dice. It is not Justice -- the servant of men, but accident, hazard, Fortune -- the ally of patient Time -- that holds an even and scrupulous balance. --Joseph Conrad, "Lord Jim" (1900)
